Key West Light

[singlepic id=87 w= h= float=center]

The original Key West lighthouse was completed in 1825 and was destroyed by hurricane in 1846.  The new tower was completed in 1848 and at the time was 50 ft tall.  A lantern replacement in 1873 added three feet and in 1894 the tower was raised twenty feet to prevent being obscured by trees and taller buildings. It’s currently about 100 ft above sea level.

The Cape Hatteras Lightstation is located in Buxton, North Carolina and is the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States at 210ft in height.  It was constructed in 1803 but was destroyed in the Civil War.  The replacement tower was first lit in 1871 and has a storied history ever since. In 1999, due to ongoing danger from erosion from the sea, the lighthouse was physically moved 3/4 mile to a safer location!
